Here's another surprise celebrity friendship (at the very least) to emerge this summer: Chris Evans and Lily James were photographed spending a night together in London. James, who played Lady Rose on Downton Abbey and starred as Cinderella in Disney's live action adaptation of the film, was seen leaving Mark's Club in Mayfair with the Captain America actor. The two had been out at the private members' club late. James wore a silky red dress and a navy trench with high heels, while Evans complemented her in a black top, blazer, and pants.

According to the Daily Mail, which ran photos of Evans and James together (you can see them all here), the two actors took a cab together to Evans' hotel, The Corinthia, around 1 AM. They exited the vehicle separately, Evans going into the front entrance of the hotel, and James to the back.

It's unclear how long James and Smith have known each other, whether they are just friends or if something romantic could be happening. But for what it's worth, they do follow each other on Instagram.

James was last linked to The Crown's Matt Smith. In December, The Sun reported that James and Smith split after five years of dating. “Things haven’t been right for a while, and a few months ago they decided to finally end it properly," a source told the outlet. “It has been difficult because they have many mutual friends, so hopefully it will all stay civilized. But for now the relationship is formally off.”

Neither Smith nor James commented on the report. They kept their relationship largely private. In March, they were photographed out together again. They haven't been photographed together since.

Evans, meanwhile, has been publicly single since his March 2018 breakup with Jenny Slate. A source told Us Weekly in January 2020 that Evans was "dating different women and is having fun." He wasn't with anyone exclusively at that point, and is generally trying to "be more private with his love life."
